Sure, great, here we go...”beginning” responsibility, and “getting” ready for school. Hey kids, how about for once you just GET responsible and BE ready for school? We’re tired of coddling you! Oh, you can’t eat your breakfast, because we put the plate up on top of the fridge and you can’t reach it because you’re only five years old? Yeah well everyone’s got some kind of sob story, just figure it out buddy! Oh, sure, cry, guess you don’t need any help learning how to “begin” doing THAT.

Inexplicable rage aside, Beginning Responsibility: Getting Ready for School centers on two wholesome 1950s lads, Pete and Ricky, and their morning routines. One boy’s home runs as smoothly as a Swiss watch, while the other is as disorganized and maddeningly chaotic as one of those Canadian watches you never hear about (and now you know why).

Hurry up and join Mike, Kevin and Bill for Beginning Responsibility: Getting Ready for School because the late bell already rang twice and if you don’t get inside now all the good educations will be taken!

So, wait.... the kid spent the night on a school night?

And it seems like most of the problems our "protagonist" suffers from on the first day are by his parents not waking him, making him do his homework or really making Ricky do anything.

So Pete invites Ricky over, then decides to spend that evening reading a book in front of him because it's due the next day? Dude, keep it an extra day and just pay the 10 cents. Either that or plan your sleepovers better.

And do kids really go to bed at 8:30? I don't have any myself, and I can barely remember being that young. (I do remember falling asleep during Fantasy Island a lot though, which I think came on at 10, after The Love Boat). If I went to sleep at 8:30 today, I'd be up at 2 in the morning.

I think maybe in the 50s or so. When I was little it was probably around 9ish till I was in the late Tween/early teens.. then it was 10-10:30.

He had to work on an "arithmetic paper"? I imagine an 2-page essay on whether or not two plus two equals four.

I'm pretty sure in grade-school I went to bed around 8:30-9pm.
